Presently, MGB Group, through its subsidiaries, specializes in IBMS and ISMS which encompass hardware and software required for the control and management of an intelligent building with components including heating, ventilation and air conditioning, lighting, fire and security equipment.
The key drivers that are guiding the building/construction industry to adopt this technology are:
- The onset of the network convergence of the CCTV, computers, alarm system nd access control with the advance technology of biometrics;
- Prevalent use of internet and IP networking; and
- The efficiency of the system as it saves time and travel cost
The integration of the building/industrial automation system security system has become one of the most popular methods used by many corporations in converging their existing system into an all encompassing system. Two (2) of the main components of the IBMS and ISMS are the hardware and the software solution. The hardware portion includes security devices such as CCTV, the video recording (either digital or analogue), access control and the intrusion devices. The software solution is an important feature which ensures that this equipment communicated and works coherently in a common personal computer-based environment.
